Oriental Mindoro Board Member Mikan Leachon gives out free face masks
While some hoard face masks, Oriental Mindoro Board Member Mikan Leachon is opting to help and giving them out for free.
In a Facebook post, Leachon said he was stranded on his way back to Calapan because of the ash fall.
But his office was open to give out particle masks while supplies are available. People interested in getting one just have to approach his staff, he said.
He also shared tips on how people could protect themselves.
N95 masks are ideal, but if these are unavailable due to low supply, surgical masks with two layers of tissue would do.
If these are not on hand, wet or damp cloth would help.
“Kahit medyo stranded pa po tayo pabalik ng Calapan dahil sa ‘ashfall’ meron na pong free ‘Particle Mask (Non-Toxic)’ pamigay ang office ni Bokal Mikan Leachon. (While supplies last)
Hindi pa rin po ito kasing epektibo ng N95 masks. Maaring lumapit lang sa aking mga staff para makakuha.
Ito po ang ilang tips and tricks para maprotektahan ang sarili sa ash fall:
1. Bumili ng N95 mask sa pinaka-malapit na drugstore o ospital.
2. Pwede po nating gamitin more than once ang N95 mask natin dahil ginagamit lamang ito sa pag-filter ng abo at hindi bilang panangga at sakit. Siguraduhin lamang na buo at maayos pa po ang porma nito.
3. Kung out of stock na ang N95 mask, pwede rin po ang SURGICAL MASK. Lagyan lang ng 2 layer ng tissue sa loob at solb na po kayo.
4. Maari rin pong alternatibo ang mamasa-masang panyo o damp cloth.
Keepsafe po sa lahat! 🧡🙏🏻,” Leachon posted.
